This is a special place where it's obvious the staff treats every person with compassion and kindness. There's respect in how every client is treated. Robert does an outstanding job of listening and providing educational resources to help cope with problems. Much good is done at New Outlook Counseling.

Robert literally saved my life.
I cannot explain it any better than that.
Thank you Robert

Robert set my son back on the straight and narrow. He didn’t sugar coat anything, but kept it real, which was exactly what my boy needed. My boy was heading in the wrong direction and Robert’s experiences allowed him to reach my son where other counselors only deigned to go. My son graduated high school and is now enlisted in the US Army ( a dream of his since he was 5). My opinion? Robert Johnson gave my son a new hope on life. I gratefully share the success of launching my son to his assistance during those turbulent years.

This is my first experience with understanding my lengthy addition to my medication. Robert has allowed me to see & has helped me through a difficult time just in life alone. Thank you RJ. I definitely recommend anyone to go spend a least a session to see what comfort you feel at his office! Much love to New Outlook Counseling!
- J Koesel. 11/16/2018
I’m thankful for being introduced to Robert and A New Outlook. I look forward to me becoming more present and in the moment and in turn having “a new outlook” and being a positive influence wherever I am.
- Ginger Watts. 11/2/2018
When I first started going to Robert I was a mess and my life was falling apart. In a few short months my life has turned completely around! He actually listens to me completely and then offers suggestions and advice that are solid and compassionate. He says that this is “my path and my program” and does not push. However, following his guidance and doing the work has paid off tremendously. He provides the tools and support that I have never had. I am grateful to have found him! If you or someone you know is struggling, go see him.
- Sarah Patran G. 7/16/2018
Robert is a really nice guy you can really talk to him about anything. I've been seeing him the past few months and he helped me out a lot I feel a lot better then when before I started seeing him. He is probably the best counseler I've had and the best one out there.
- Benjamin Bullard. 6/27/2018

- Catherine Mc Corry. 2/8/2018
Dr. Robert genuinely cares about his paitents. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.
- vsouki2000 . 1/20/2018
I've worked with Robert Johnson for years and I found him to be supportive, experienced and he knows how to "get the job done". He was instrumental in providing me the quality time I experienced just before my mother died. I was in a very unstable condition and he was there to support me the last time I saw my mom. I mean, he was there, with me at my mother's house. He waited patiently, for hours while I spent quality time with my mom. He invested personally. He cared. He understood. He listened. What more could you ask for in a counselor? What more could you ask for in a friend?
- Cliffy Duz. 1/10/2018

I would absolutely recommend A New Outlook Counseling Services to anyone who is struggling within their addiction. In my opinion, we will never be cured of the disease of addiction, but with such help, as A New Outlook, my need to entertain the thoughts of my addiction are far way less with the help of Robert....thank you.

- Kinue Langhofer. 11/13/2014
Robert Johnson has been a fantastic asset to my husband and I continuing to build a strong marriage and partnership. We were required to undergo pre-marital counseling for the church that we wanted to get married in. An obligation turned into healthy foundation for us to begin our lives together. I would highly recommend Robert for anyone looking for help building their marriage.
- Ruthie Roark. 11/8/2014
Its 2007 and i entered treatment scared and alone. Robert was one of my counselors that worked with me during my stay. He was able to get to the root of my issues, work with me in dealing with them, and taught me skills to live life sober on a daily basis. For this i am forever grateful. Highly recommended and thank you again for saving my life.
- Chris Joannides. 8/10/2014
My sweetheart and I have been through some of the most difficult times in our lives over this past year. Robert has been a pillar for us, helping us navigate and giving us tools to help us grow. We are both business professionals that travel almost 100%%. He has been gracious to work with us and his schedule is very accomadating. A rare find!
I highly reccomend Robert for any area you may be struggling!
